    This approach to the layout can also accommodate expansion of the apparatus bay on the other side of the support and maintenance areas, although care must be taken to ensure that internal response times can be met after any expansion. This technical guidance is in alignment with the operational guidance contained in the publication Petrol filling stations guidance on managing the risks of fire and explosion the Red guide produced by the Petroleum Enforcement Liaison Group Updates to sections on vapour recovery to reflect changes in UK legislation and the uptake of stage 2 vapour recovery. It also includes storage areas for firefighting gear and equipment and secure storage for medical supplies. Developed by DMJM Design, Arlington, VA Apparatus Bays By placing the apparatus bay between the maintenance and support functions and the residential and administrative functions, both primary layout goals can be accomplished. There will be an alarm system to alert them of an emergency calland to give some indication of where and what the emergency is.

    The new station will accommodate both Fire and EMS as the department transitions from volunteer to a career fire department and the two emergency entities have now merged. Bay doors must also accommodate the largest vehicle and include a manual means to open in case of power failure. This is particularly true with the apparatus bay and the day room as many facility spaces require an adjacency with these two spaces. Unfortunately, this isn't as good as I remembered.

    This approach to the layout can also accommodate expansion of the apparatus bay on the other side of the support and maintenance areas, although care must be taken to ensure that internal response times can be met after any expansion. The remainder of the first floor consists of: a report writing room that doubles as a backup emergency dispatch center, administrative offices, a person dayroom, a kitchen we would all want to have in our own home, a dining room, and weight room facilities. A fire station also called a fire house, fire hall, firemen's hall, or engine house is a structure or other area for storing firefighting apparatus such as fire engines and related vehicles, personal protective equipmentfire hoses and other specialized equipment. When an alarm goes off, Sheila pulls Michael into the back seat of the fire truck they're in at the time, and they end up going to the fire. Together, the project team made sure that the facility was not only finished on time, but also of the highest construction quality.

The station is equipped with a state-of-the-art, customizable, alerting system that can be clearly heard throughout the facility. This approach to the layout can also accommodate expansion of the apparatus bay on the other side of the support and maintenance areas, although care must be taken to ensure that internal response times can be met after any expansion.
